Speaking of Owls…

I made an Owls Sweater, how about Owl pants? I wanted to share these adorable pj pants made by Melissa at The Linden Tree!

It’s the Tofino Pants pattern, sewn in an adorable snowy owl print fabric. The print is called SnOwls – snow owls! It’s really cute. Perfect for pyjama pants!

The fabric is designed by Cindy Lindgren, who emailed me a couple of weeks ago to share her photos. She’s a fabric designer for Modern Yardage, a fabric company that prints fabric on demand as it’s ordered, rather than printing large amounts to sell. Which is a pretty neat concept, I think! Less waste, printing only what people need and want.

This pattern looks great with a printed fabric and a coordinating solid colour for the piping.

Here’s an extra adorable pair of Tofino pants – in miniature size!

Melissa adapted the Tofino pattern to fit a three year old. So cute! Especially with tiny little owls all over them. Although I’ll be honest, I’d totally wear snOwl pants myself around the house.

Isn’t this neat? Thanks Melissa and Cindy for letting me share these photos!

    These are so cute! I have a bit of an obsession with owls and have already purchased fabric to make a pair of owl print pyjamas…seeing these just bumped this plan up to the top of my list! I am also planning to knit the owl sweater too…I bet the two will look great together!

    Thanks so much for showing me this Tasia- their designs are gorgeous! Also very reasonable! I thought since they were printing on demand and the designs are lovely that the prices would be quite steep but their really quite affordable!
    Do I need more fabric? No. Am I getting more fabric? Maybe…

    They look like little ghosts from far away. :-)

    Let’s us not forget about Sponflower.com as another option for designing your own fabric. For creative people who can’t get enough visual stimulation, they also offer wall paper, dream it yourself stickers and some free sewing tutorials. But I digress, owls are the cutest thing, very appropriate for this pattern what a great young designer!

      Cindy Lindgren is one of our licensed designers at Modern Yardage. However, we also print custom designs for individuals. This is not our main focus, but our prices are much more reasonable than Spoonflower’s rates.

      Thank you Melissa! So glad you liked it, I’m excited that you will be carrying my patterns as well! Have a great day :)

    Tasia,
    Thank you so much for sharing my photos with your readers! Your pattern was so flattering with my fabric and the results are wonderful. I encourage your readers to make some lounge pants for themselves; the SnOwls come in 6 different colors and 3 different scales. Thanks again!

    Along these lines … I just sewed some 2T sized pajamas with some adorable owl-motif fabric. Then, I used the leftover fabric and some scraps to make three 7″ stuffed owls from a simple design I sketched. Being new to responding to these blogs, I’m wondering how I can upload or send a link to show photos.

    Thanks for your blog! I found it because I bought the Minoru jacket pattern and was searching online for some guidance about how to add side pockets.

      Hi Kathy! You can add a link to your comment just by copy and pasting it in! It’ll automatically turn into a link then. So glad you like the blog! I have a few posts – or rather, links to other people’s posts – that mention how to add more pockets to the Minoru.
